Maximilian Gallo studies cultural studies and cultural politics in international comparison at the University of Hildesheim. With the Bachelor Plus Program he will spend two semesters in Vilnius, working as an intern for four month and studying at the Vilnius University for one semester.
Working on research projects in Uganda, the Netherlands and for art institutions in Germany, he mixes the different abilities and experiences he gained during his work with his academic interests. As a project manager for the city municipality of Kassel, Germany, he finished a project, which enables people from all over the world to interact with the artworks in the city via a website and a mobile application. On its root the project points out one of the main interests of Maximilian, working together with a diverse range of people, hearing their interests and collaboratively working on a project.
His decision to complete the internship at the European Foundation of Human Rights (EFHR) is accompanied by his interest in social responsibilities, political structures and of course human rights. While exploring new fields of knowledge and experiencing the culture of another country are building up the second Cullum of his interests.
Both in work and in leisure time, he is attracted by thoughts about the facilitation of political opinions through novel formats of presentation and in the same breath thinking about how to strengthen the voices of the unheard people in a society. At his home university he, together with another student, created a website in which the political structure of the university is explained and the communication between the political bodies of the university and the students is made accessible.
